    Kwun could it be that your old shuttles have deteriated slightly, but due to the fact that shuttles a few years ago where so much better, they still play better than the fresh new shuttles. i played with a few tubes of old shuttles that had been just sitting in a cupboard under my combi-boiler for two seasons, in a 24 hour badminton event, so a good test. they where far superior to any new shuttles we had in relation to longevity, just a thought

    It is hard to say because you are comparing shuttles of different brands. In the old days almost all shuttles were made from goose feathers. That was when demand for them was very small. Now the demand for shuttles has really shot through the roof, especially after the Beijing Olympics. To meet this increased demand duck feathers are now increasingly being used. Duck feathers are not as durable as goose feathers although they have the same playability and the same grading system. Also the most durable goose feather shuttles do not have the best playability. The best playability shuttles come from the feathers in the middle of the wing, which are not exactly the strongest feathers as they are used for lift instead of boost or propulsion in a bird's take-off. Very thick and stiff feathers are not good for playability and durability. They are too stiff to be able to absorb the enormous forces from a power hit. They also feel hard. Good feathers must feel firm yet a little flexible at the spines. Also the type of glue or resins used have an effect on durability too. Natural resins are best but they are now very expensive.
